Chelsea went into the weekend as the leaders, they also knew a win at the Etihad Stadium and they would retain this place whatever anyone else did. The Blues eventually managed this when they saw off the challenge of Manchester City. A 3-1 win also saw Pep Guardiola’s side ending with nine men.

The pressure was well and truly on Crystal Palace for a different reason. Alan Pardew knew he could have been sacked had he lost to a former club Southampton, a 3-0 win later and things looked better at Selhurst Park

Burnley suffered a third straight defeat when Stoke‘s improvement continued. Despite the injury problems Mark Hughes has had to contend with he’s led the Potters away from trouble and into the top 10.

The Premier League dream continues to turn into a nightmare for Leicester with the champions fighting a relegation battle this season! The latest defeat saw them beaten by Sunderland as the Black Cats recorded a third win in four.

Swansea conceded four goals against Crystal Palace in their last game but still went away with a win after scoring five! This time they conceded five without reply in a 5-0 defeat at Tottenham, which saw Spurs move to within three points of the top four with the Swans dropping to the foot of the table.

A third win in four saw West Brom up to 7th after a 3-1 win against Watford. However, the Hornets’ own third defeat in four saw them drop out of the top 10.

The games on Saturday rounded off with title-chasing Arsenal thrashing struggling West Ham 5-1 to move up to second, three points off the leaders Chelsea. The Hammers are just above the drop zone.

Sunday was certainly a super one for AFC Bournemouth as Eddie Howe’s side recorded an amazing win against Liverpool, who were beaten for the first time in the last 10 games as the Cherries came back from three one down to secured a 4-3 victory at Dean Court.

Later that day the other half of Merseyside scored a late goal to claim a point as Everton came from behind at Goodison Park to secure a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

Hull travelled to the Riverside Stadium on Monday looking for a victory that would have taken them out of the bottom three, this would have drawn Middlesbrough right back into trouble too. However, Boro collected these points with a 1-0 win to round off the action.
